    There is an empty place in our lives; a place that was filled by a remarkable woman, our Ruthie. No one else we know can ever fill that space, because there is no one else like her. You always knew where you stood with her. If she loved you, you were loved. If you got on her wrong side you had better look out. She loved life, she loved Charlie, she loved her family and her friends. And we all know her love of the Huskers, the Yankees, the Irish and the King (Elvis). She embraced us all in her world and now our world is a bit lonelier without her. We love you, Ruthie, and you will always be the best part of our lives. Uncle Rodney and Joycie

    So very sorry to hear about Ruth’s passing. She was one spunky lady. Enjoyed seeing her every six months at the dentist office over the last 15 years.

    We will miss your wonderful laugh and sense of humor and all of the funny situations you got yourself into. The girls will greatly miss seeing you at all of their school events. We will always remember the fun times we had at the Husker games, the St Patricks Day Parade, and the Holidays. You were “One of a Kind”. RIP Aunt Lindy!

    Sorry to hear of Ruth’s passing. I hadn’t been in contact with her for quite some time, but will never forget her zest for life. I worked with Ruth at Commercial Federal Bank and attended the 1993 Orange Bowl with her family, along with several bus trips to games and some tailgate parties in the 90’s.

    I got to know Ruth and Charlie as I was a past employee of Prairie Life Fitness. She was one of a kind that loved to talk Husker football and the New York Yankees. After I left Prairie Life, she would still keep in touch to make sure life was good and keep in touch. I was actually fortunate enough to grab a couple adult beverages with Charlie, Ruth, and my old co worker John Sweeney and wife Sue a couple months ago. We had a great time and many laughs and Ruth was still the funny lady who loved to talk sports and also talk a little smack to all!!! She will be missed by myself and many others!!! RIP Ruth!!!

    Aunt Lindy you were a true legend in all aspects of your life. I was very priveleged to have you in my life, as a true 2nd Mom for 47 years. I am so happy that I was able to see you every chance I had, in the hospital, & take care of you there & @ home. Uncle Charlie was your Universe, a place where you let so many join & made them feel like immediate family right away. I feel so empty, & I dred Those “firsts” w/o you. I hope you are dancing the Irish Jig, as it is storming outside while I am typing this.
    Love forever,
    Cindy Romero

    What a hoot Ruth was. I worked with her at Commercial Federal; never a dull moment. What an inspiration. Her vitality for life was like no other. Yes, the good Lord will have his hands full now. Go Huskers Ruth!
